I received a diagnosis of melanoma today when I went following excision biopsy of lesion on my face which my dermatologist said could be solar keratosis or squamous cell, so quite shocked as I thought that originated in a mole which this didn’t.
He did an immediate larger excision as it wasn’t all out first time. Is that likely to be a WLE?
I go back for follow up in four weeks but he says no further treatment needed at this stage. Does that sound reasonable. It was 1.6mm deep and it had probably ulcerated in the early stage and when they did cryosurgery on what they thought was solar keratosis 5 months ago.
He said it was partly growing down as well as up. He felt my lymph nodes in my neck and they seemed fine.
Can anyone say whether I’m likely to need any further investigations at this stage? Thanks for any help,
Do you have the pathology report on this? I am wondering what kind of melanoma it was? I would get that from the derm. Where are you going for treatment? It sounds a bit off the norm as to what is happening with the procedures. But let’s go over your pathology report first. We are definitely here to help you.
